We have an exciting new project - Stout's Pub located at 1611 Larpenter in Falcon Heights. We will be documenting the process from start to finish. The first step in preparing the wood is denailing. Since the wood that we use comes from old warehouses and barns, it is filled with nails. All of the old hardware has to be pulled by hand. We use a metal detector to find metal pieces that we can't see. All of the old hardware must be removed before we can run it through the saw.
